EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU

If you are involved with designing and manufacturing of any products related to machinery within the EU then you are probably aware of the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU. The EU machinery directive ensures that any products developed and designed for the EU market meets a single set of safety standards.

How does this typically affect your company if you are designing and manufacturing for the EU?

Just to name a few requirements, firstly your company requires a comprehensive up to date documentation process which must be maintained for a minimum of 10 years, not forgetting that your products must meet health and safety requirements. If you are creating any type of technical documentation then this also must be natively translated for the intended country in the EU.
